Calzone with anari cheese and ham


For the dough

  • In a bowl, mix the yeast with lukewarm water. Add the sugar and stir until it dissolves. Set aside for 10 minutes for the yeast to work.
  • In another bowl, mix the flour, semolina and salt. Add in the yeast and olive oil and mix together using a spoon. When it becomes too hard to use the spoon, begin to knead the dough by hand on a counter top.
  • Line a bowl with olive oil, put in the dough, cover with cling film and set aside at room temperature for 2 hours until the dough rises to twice its original size. How long we let it sit depends on the time of year and temperature.

For the filling

  • As the dough rises, put all the ingredients for the filling (except the cheese) in a bowl, add salt, pepper and mix. Add the cheese and mix well when you are ready to place in the oven.

To assemble

  • Preheat the oven to 190ο C (370ο F) set to fan.
  • Separate the dough in two equal parts and sprinkle with semolina. Toss some semolina on a cutting board and use a rolling pin to unfold each batch of dough to appr. 20 cm in diameter. (If the dough sticks to the cutting board , use more semolina). Transfer the first batch of dough into a flour lined baking tray.
  • Separate the filling into two batches. Put half the filling in one tray covering only half its surface as the dough will be folded over. Pour a little bit of water around the dough.
  • Seal half the dough into a half moon shape. Press down on the edges firmly to ensure it’s sealed well, and pinch the circumference of the dough at 1 cm intervals and fold it at 90 degrees to make a nice shape.
  • Prepare the second calzone in the same way and place in the oven for 15 minutes at 200o C (390o F).
  • Remove from the oven and set aside on a rack for 5 minutes. Cut in half and serve.
